Subject: Glad I was there
Subject: like much of 95 it has its moments
Subject: Even More Pigshit!
Just listen to the scarlet "jam". It's pathetic. I have no idea what Garcia is doing and neither does the band. The FOTM "jam" is the same. And it doesn't improve.
These show is so pathetic that if I were there, and close enough to the stage, I would have pulled down my pants, squatted down, takin' a big 'ole shit, reached down and picked up that shit with my bare hands, and threw it at the stage!
Another 5 turd performance for the 5 turd year of 1995

The Scarlet - Fire was SMOKIN and the Dew was SPECTACULAR. Think about it - DEAD in less than 2 months and a review of SMOKIN and SPECTACULAR.
I'm not a sicko fan who cant give a bad review but Jerry Garcia still gave us his all. And if your all fucked up on drugs and close to death your best isnt gonna be anyehere near 100%.
I love Jerry Garcia and the GD and appreciated and cherished 1995. Especially the Giants Stadium show with the Wharfrat everybody goes on about.It was my last show with Jerry and I'll always remember it.
Subject: Really Bad Show...
Subject: Drippin' @ the Knick
Sadly, I only started seeing shows in '92. I wasn't at the Capital Theater in '78. But I can say, there were moments where they did that thing, that magical thing, and this is one of them - with or without the acid & piney biscuits!
Subject: morning dew
Subject: Solid Show!
Subject: Bathed in the Dew
Rest of the show was uneven and plagued with audio difficulties. I seem to remember that I couldn't even hear Jerry's guitar until "Row Jimmy." The following night was a much better show, all around, but you can't beat this "Dew." Put on the 'phones and crank this one up.
Subject: late to show...
i have been late to two shows in my life....
this was the first - i missed the loser and came in during take me to the river - i wanted to kill the people that held me up and was very depressed.
i just listened to it for the first time...and it is beautiful.
we camped in about four locations the night before the show...got thrown out of each place by the cops...settling finally on a spot under the railroad tracks in renneslear (spelling?) anyway, we wake up to a sound at our feet: this homeless guy watching us sleep with a knife in his hands, basically i thought i was about to become the subject of a future america's most wanted episode. he goes, 'hey folks, i am just watching out for yez - there's alot of crazies around here that would slit your throat....rest easy i'll keep you safe."
oh...the other show i was late too was the first night dylan played keyboard and opened with solid rock, the song i had been waiting to hear for about 10 years, in seattle.
Subject: it DOES indeed!
Subject: good show at the knick for 1995
albany ny was a very kind place and deadheads seemed
to take over the town. had alot of fun up there and the concert
for 1995 was pretty good ...... check out am dew
Subject: Not the best, but ok for 95
The highlight of the show is, of course, the stellar final Morning Dew. Without that, it would have been a 2 star show.
Subject: "Guess it DOES matter anyway..."
The rest of the show is barely respectable '95, if that tells you anything.
Subject: man oh man
I started listening to this show and i signed for a package at the door and i came back and the first set was over. I think there was a first set. Wouldn't know it by the 35 mins of slop. People i'm trying to get into these 95's but man it's brutal.
Subject: morning dew.
Subject: im into it
Subject: One of the better '95 shows
Subject: Average At Best
Funny thing at this show: I'm behind the stage...some hippie behind me starts screaming and cursing at Bobby at the top of his lungs to "don't you play Easy Answers you motherfu***r!" as Bobby begins the song. Funny.
Subject: CAN'T DECIDE?
AWFUL. Don't even waste your time reading my review. I left this show and sold all my tickets for the rest of the tour. Yes, seriously.
This was my last show, out of nearly 400.
1 star because there is no option for NONE.
Subject: Low Light of all the Knick Runs
The next night things were back to normal They rocked and looked like they'd go forever. Skip this one and DL the 22nd.
I have really enjoyed listening to this show...Best performance of 'Row Jimmy' that I have encountered thus far. Is that Phil singing 'Broken Arrow'? Also, who was playing keyboards for The Dead at this time? I know Keith Godcheaux has assumed the role, as well as Brent Mydland and Bruce Hornsby...
All the best,
Subject: Lights on in the funhouse...
with his back to the crowd, noodling for that period of time. People were puzzled by his presence. It was like turning the lights on in the fun house. I think the band dug Albany alot and these last 2 were definately proof of it. 6/21, My last show, wonderful but, shaky sets, flubbed Scarlet verses and all... goes to show, you don't ever know... this night will live in my heart forever.
Revision - 7/11 - Imercator,
poor you... 1/2 a day downloading, I feel for you
brother. This is an AMAZING way to get shows for free and quality issues or not, everyone in the scene never imagined a vehicle like this ten years ago. When we all dealt with cassettes, bad gens, waiting for trades, cut songs, $25 Dick's Picks, blah blah... A long download on .50 cent cdrs, + for free, you're not out too much.
Enjoy the music, forgive the hassle. The Dead are the Dead, good or bad. Your .02 and mine. Peace....
Subject: Disappointing show
Please people, rate these shows on how the recordings sound, rather than on how good a time you had at them. Otherwise you get folks like me wasting half a day downloading something they didn't really want to hear.
